Plan Your Funeral With Golden Charter Trust.

With the Independent Way plan, we will make sure that your loved ones will be spared much of the burden of organising a funeral. You’ll have specified every detail in advance and taken care of all the costs that are within our control.

No matter how much our services may rise in cost in years to come, once your plan is fully in place, neither you nor your loved ones will be asked for a penny more for them. It’s a guarantee that gives you peace of mind. You can be assured that your family will be spared what could be a financial worry.

There are some costs which we are obliged to pay on your behalf. They are known as disbursements and include the charges of cemeteries and crematoria , as well as doctors fee’s for the cremation certificates, the fees of clergy or officiants and the costs of the newspaper notices and memorials. The amount of this expenditure is not within our control and may require a further payment at the time of need.

Most plans holders pay in full for their plan in a single payment, the benefits of this include that your plan is in place as soon as we have accepted your application and all the relevant paperwork has been completed.

It is possible to pay for your plan ( at no extra cost ) over a 12 month period by direct debit. If you choose this option your plan will not be in place until the final payment is made. Should you pass away before making the final payment, your family or estate will be given the choice of making all outstanding payments or having a full refund of the amount paid.

Please contact us for any help or advice you require. Arrangements  outside these hours can be made by contacting us.
